"This laptop is by far my favorite. Beautiful style and clear screen. Everything about this laptop makes it the best I ever had (so far). I did how ever notice 4 minor flaws that might just be the way I use my laptop. The SPACE BAR and the LEFT CLICK button next to the Touch Pad needs to be pushed a little harder in order to work. Next is the AC Adapter cord. The plug that goes into the side of the laptop sticks out too far. In the past, I have seen this type of connection fail do to pressure on the plug causing to damage the internal connection. The last item is the speakers, older models had louder speakers."

"Great laptop for the price, I recently purchased one for school work. The Toshiba bundled software that came with this laptop is kind of a pain...the wireless LAN control software has some bugs, whenever you restart the laptop it says no wireless networks are available so you have to cycle the wifi card off then back on...and then it works like a champ. I have been trying to find a solution with no success. I'll keep trying but that is my only issue. Still a great buy."

"I had this laptop for several weeks now, and I haven't experienced any problems. The performance is great, very fast. The wireless problem that the guy above described is not apparent with my laptop. It seamlessly connects to either my home's or school's wifi without any problems. The only thing I thought was wrong when I first used it was the sensitive mouse pad. I didn't know that you can use two fingers to zoom, so every time I accidentally had an extra finger on the pad it would go crazy. After learning how to use it properly. The mouse pad is perfect. The battery lasts around 5 hours with the brightness on 50%. Oh, playing games on this laptop is pretty good as well. I played League of Legends with no lag, so I'm guessing it would be good for other non-intense games. The reason I got this Toshiba is that my other Toshiba laptop has been working with ZERO problems for FOUR years now! Toshiba's hardware is very reliable. But my old Toshiba's battery life significantly decreased (from 3 hours to 1 hour), but this is normal for laptops. I'm pretty confident that my new Toshiba should live with no problems. Anyway, if you want this model and you're on a tight budget, consider buying the I3 processor version. In the end, buy this laptop if you want the complete package for a budget conscious price. Thanks Toshiba, I appreciate your hardwork and dedication.

"I haven't had it on battery only very often so the low rating is only because I had to put something in (really need a NotApplicable option for that item). I gave it 4 stars for performance - space bar is a little less responsive than I'm used to."

"Have it for a month now. Fast, light weight and also beautiful design. Great monitor in the sense of colors and brightness but with low angle of viewing. Also, stays cool even after hours of extensive use.
As for cons - too many unnecessary light indicators, space button is slightly less responsive than it should be, and the speakers are better on my cellphone than on this laptop. All in all, great all-around and reliable machine for the money you pay."

"I've had this laptop for about a month now and have not had any issue with it. It boots up quickly and is almost too fast for me, but I'm getting used to it. The battery life is not as good as stated and non-Toshiba extended batteries don't work, so looking at getting a Toshiba extended battery. If you don't need to have more than 3 hours battery life, this one will server you well. I would recommend it."

"This laptop performs well with my limited use so far. There have been a few glitches and things I need to get used to or tune.
The restore process takes 5 DVDs - that is ridiculous - a symptom of the bloatware on the computer that it isn't obvious how to remove.
Furthermore the creation of the restore set stopped with an error on the 2nd DVD.
The touchpad (synaptics pointing device) is difficult to adjust, generally too sensitive. The scroll seems to get messed up at times, I think it believes the control key is being pushed.
The wireless works well, but the driver doesn't seem to load correctly for Ubuntu."

"The Satellite L745-S4235 is a fast multitasker. It is well appointed with plenty of RAM and the great i-5 processor. The two BIG downfalls are the small capacity battery and the absolutely unsatisfactory sound system. It is not even worth listening to music without external speakers, unless you use headphones. The battery only holds a short charge."
